    McDavid has made more than $30 million US in his career so unless he is a total fool he should be fine.

    Was yesterday real or was it some ridiculous kayfabe like in WWE?

    That's probably jusy his UFC career not counting the huge payday from the Mayweather fight. This was probably a poorly planned publicity stunt that went wrong.

    I forgot about the $100 million he made in the Mayfield fiasco.

    The publicity stunt angle is where I was going with the kayfabe thing.

    He looked chemically unbalanced during that rampage. Not sure what caused it but it was full on cray cray.

    Even Dana thought the guy was on drugs.

    Interesting to see if anything happens from Saturday night's incident. Fighter says she is done, but corner tells her otherwise. I think what's worse to me is there are suppose to be doctors that look in on fighters in between rounds. You'd think that would be a huge red flag.

    Yup that was disgusting.
    I honestly don't understand what's going on in the heads of coaches when their fighters have had their bodies munched to pieces and they're still pushing them to do more.

    Her coaches did NOTHING to prepare her for Nunes. They just had this idea in their head that she'd sparred with Nunes before and would know what to do.

    It looked like she had absolutely no game plan for that fight and was totally caught off guard.

    So now that we've got word that GSP is gonna fight Nate Diaz I've got this crazy idea in my head that either Connor or Khabib will fight the winner.

    Pretty sure GSP makes very quick work of Nate. GSP didn't have too hard of a time with Nick, and Nick is a far superior all around fighter than Nate.

    Only reason Pennigton was there is because of how tough she is. Not fighting in a year in a half was a horrid matchup. Although you have to take your shot when you get it I guess.

    From a marketing stand point most hate the Diaz brothers. Gonna be a lot of guys wanting to see GSP choke him out.

    The Diaz brothers' fights sell themselves.
    They constantly move forward, they don't take rounds off laying on guys and they absorb tons of shots.
    Actually, I think Nate set a record for most shots absorbed in his 2nd fight vs Connor.
    I think he also became the leader for most shots landed all time in UFC.

    Big John McCarthy was on JRE last night. Good listen.

    First comment time stamped some topics they talked about.
